Let’s be honest…there are worse ways to kickstart the weekend than with a cold beverage.
And yet, it’s easy to fall into a routine of buying the same couple of beers or spirits at your favorite watering hole or the LCBO. Of course, there’s always going to be your standard go-to’s. But mixing it up (get it…mixing???) makes for a fun outing.
With that in mind, we’re taking a shot (bet you thought we would stop with the drinking puns after that first one) at finding you a weekly selection of spirits to liven up your Friday.
This week why don’t your try…
12 MINUTES TO DESTINY – FLYING MONKEYS
As the summer moves inevitably to it’s final act, it behooves us (bet you haven’ heard that term since Grade 11 English class) to partake in as many seasonal ales as possible.
And you could do worse than 12 Minutes to Destiny, an imaginative pale with as much character as it’s creative cover.
The initial pour retains a finger and a half of frothy lace, giving way to a pale red body and ample carbonation. The first sensations on the nose are aromas of raspberry and florals, backed by malts.
The first taste reinforces the fruit infusion, with balanced traces of oat through the entire sitting. The aftermath leaves a tinge of flower and dryness, encompassing the drink’s light refreshment.
Overall, this is an enjoyable fruit lager, with complexity but not overpowering sweetness. An ideal summer find.
It pairs well with seafood, especially sushi and East Asian cuisines; or with fruit deserts such as strawberry shortcake. And 4.10% ABV, you can stick with it for the majority of your sitting.
